Dogs and Schizophrenia and other mental disorders

Dear all,

My dogs are my constant companions when I am at home and I think of both of them as therapy dogs.  Petting them, grooming them, playing with them, loving them, watching them be silly and observe unending energy when new people come over are all ways to feel better about yourself not only if you have a mental disorder as I do.  I take pics of them looking at me with nothing but absolute love in their eyes.  They never make me feel bad the way people can if you let them.

When Peter the Community Marketing Manager of Rover reached out to me and asked me to spread the benefits I was all over it.  I hadn’t thought before how much my dogs help me and after reading the article I have to pass it on.  So check out the link below and if you are a dog owner with a mental disorder share in the comments please for others.
